JUST COMPLETED! 1965 MUSTANG SHELBY HERTZ RENT-A-RACER TRIBUTE !





FIRST, LET'S CLARIFY THAT WE ARE AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE HERTZ RENT-A-RACER PROGRAM WASN'T INSTITUTED UNTIL SEPT. 1965, AND '66 MODELS WERE USED. THIS IS A 1965 BUILT INTO A '66 TRIBUTE VEHICLE.

HERTZ RENT-A- RACER:

In September of 1965 Shelby American General Manager Peyton Cramer struck up a deal with Hertz to offer the 1966 GT350H Mustang as a rental car. The program was a clever one for Ford and Shelby as it worked to promote the Shelby Mustang to potential buyers. As Ford puts it, “The idea was to put high-performance, special-edition Shelby Mustang coupes into the hands of racing enthusiast-minded rental customers.” That’s right, if you were a Hertz Sports Car Club member back in 1966 (and 25 years of age), you could drive off the rental car lot in a performance 306 hp Mustang fastback. Total cost: $17 a day and 17 cents a mile. Not a bad deal by today’s standards and not a bad deal back then.
